  • CX-10 Quadcopter from BangGood

    Posted on December 31st, 2014 admin No comments

    My little Christmas present, a Cheerson CX-10 quadcopter, arrived today from Hong Kong.  It was only about $25 CAD from www.banggood.com and included free shipping.

    My first impression on opening the package was, "Man, that's small!"  At 4.4 cm square, it is tiny indeed.  When it came out

    (spring 2014) this tiny toy was said to be the world's smallest full-function quadcopter, and it may still hold that distinction.

    Despite its small size, it has full control over throttle (up/down), yaw (rotate), pitch (forward/backward) and roll (left/right) along with three operating modes (beginner/sport/expert).

    It's fun to fly, and seems tough enough to take the inevitable smacks into walls, ceiling, and furniture that is involved with learning to fly.  By my fifth charge, I had it set for a stable hover, and was beginning training flights (forward and back, left and right, "walk the dog", fly over and land on the sofa, etc.)

    It's a good trainer for the larger and more costly quad and tricopter I'm building.
